Billionaire Boy description
Billionaire Boy is a wonderfully funny children's story by David Walliams. Published in 2011, it proved an instant hit. The book was adapted for the BBC for early 2016 and is hugely popular with children all over the country. The stage version of this well-loved story comes fresh from the award-winning West End producers of 2017's Gangsta Granny, another Walliams classic brought to the stage. It's a brand new production by the Birmingham Stage Company, and it's playing at the magnificent Garrick for summer 2021.
What's the story behind Billionaire Boy?
Billionaire Boy stars the 12 year old billionaire Joe Spud, who lives with his billionaire dad. Mr Spud made his billions from the revolutionary Bumfresh toilet paper he invented and the family lives in a huge mansion in the countryside. Joe and his dad have everything they could possibly need. Cars, pet crocodiles, endless amounts of money. An orang-utan butler. Their very own bowling alley. A massive cinema. But Joe is not happy, because he has no friends. Not one.
When Joe decides enough is enough and leaves his posh public school to go to a local comprehensive school, he makes a new friend called Bob. But he soon discovers that money cannot, in fact, buy everything. In fact the most important things can't be bought at all.
